Shamanic practices around the world all have one thing in common - they utilize an altered state of consciousness. True shamans work to improve the health of an individual, the health of society, and their own health.
In this program, you will explore the history and science of core shamanism and practice traditional journeys. You will then go beyond shamanism by utilizing the drum and its rhythms to enhance your relationship with yourself and the world through energy work, visualizations, and more. Each of the drum-driven meditations will help you achieve specific brainwave states, the very heart of altered states of consciousness, where you will successfully attend to your energetic body.
Note: Considerable skill and experience is needed to act as a shamanic practitioner; this course does not teach techniques to help you facilitate others' shamanic and energetic experiences.
This program introduces you to core shamanism - the three essential techniques used around the world among disparate cultures.
Altered State of Consciousness
Shamanic practitioners use techniques to alter their consciousness to open to alternate realities.
Harnessing mental imagery to intuit and influence the world is a skill every shamanic practitioner employs.
Ceremonial intent allows shamanic practitioners to create a sacred space that facilitates a deeper experience.
This program begins with an introduction to core shamanism. Core shamanism consists of three components: altered consciousness, visualization, and ceremonial intent. To facilitate the altered state--called the shamanic state of consciousness (SSC)--I use the drum. Practitioners around the world also use chemicals to achieve SSC, but I believe the drum and its rhythms provide more control over the latter two components of visualization and ceremony.
You will embark on traditional shamanic vision-quests--called journeys--to develop and clarify your inner vision. You will learn to set the space for your journeys through ceremony and intent. You will explore how to properly interpret your journeys so you can apply your knowledge to your life in a positive way.
This course then goes beyond the confines of traditional core shamanism. I will expand on core shamanic techniques with variations on rhythm, tempo, and visualization to harness the power of shamanic ideas through meditation, creativity, intuition, problem-solving, and manifesting, among others. The drum-driven meditations will help you access specific brainwave states that will facilitate your work.
I will explain the science supporting these techniques and examine the following concepts:
When I first explored core shamanism, I was a miserable failure. I couldn’t sit still for very long (I have ADHD, in case you didn’t know). My visualizations made no sense and I struggled with how this technique related to my religious upbringing (conservative Christianity).
It wasn’t until I learned the science behind the core shamanism that I was able to embrace the power of shamanic techniques. By understanding the neurological basis for shamanism, I discovered how to utilize rhythm to help my brain achieve the shamanic state of consciousness (SSC). I also developed the skills to “see” in my visualizations and came to terms with the fact that my religious upbringing didn't have a connection with what I could achieve by exploring these techniques.
In Beyond Shamanism, I combine age-old techniques with modern technologies that require minimal effort on your part (you won’t have to learn to play a drum). You will experience auditory driving, entrainment and the shifting of brainwave states -- each of which will profoundly impact your ability to meditate, visualize, and create.
You will discover that age-old shamanic techniques can counteract many of the problems we face with technology, social media, and sensory overwhelm in today’s world. By attaining the ability to direct altered states of consciousness and harness your mental focus, you will employ intentional “dreaming” and gain a deeper sense of self and mental mastery.
If you are a practitioner of meditation or affirmations (law of attraction, perhaps?) the tools you will discover in this program will take your practices to new levels of possibility.
